 Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus - Regalis
In the mid-thirteenth century, the Order of Saint Lazarus was formally recognised as a military and hospitaller order by a Papal Bull which confirmed to it the religious rule of Saint Augustine.
The Order he founded, which at first was little more than a noble confraternity, does not seem to have had a particularly active existence after his election as Pope, nor to have survived his death, as a cardinal of the Church, in January 1451.
A closer analogy may be made to the Order of Saint Stephen of Tuscany, a dynastic institution likewise enlisted in the naval wars of the Mediterranean, and viewed by the Papacy in the same light as the Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus.

 Order of precedence - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An order of precedence is a sequential hierarchy of nominal importance of people; it is used by many organizations and governments.
One's position in an order of precedence is not necessarily an indication of functional importance, but rather an indication of ceremonial or historical relevance; for instance, it may dictate where dignitaries are seated at formal dinners.
Additionally, it may serve as the order of succession to determine who replaces the head of state in the event they are removed from office or incapacitated, although the two terms are not interchangeable in most cases.

 Order of Precedency in England
regard to the order of precedency, it may be observed in general, that persons of every degree of honour or dignity take place according to the seniority of their creation, and not of years, unless they are descended of the blood-royal; in which case they have place of all others of the same degree.
With regard to the precedency among women, we may observe, that women, before marriage, have precedency by their father; with this difference between them and the male children, that the same precedency is due to all the daughters that belongs to the eldest.
If a woman has precedency by creation or birth, she retains the same, though she marries an inferior; but if a woman nobly born marry any nobleman, as a baron, she shall take place according to the degree of the husband only, though she be a duke's daughter.

The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is, in practice, the political leader of the United Kingdom.
The title "Prime Minister", however, is not altogether a matter of convention, as in 1905 it was in a sense given official recognition when the "Prime Minister" was named in the order of precedence, outranked, among non-royals, only by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York and by the Lord Chancellor.
Previous precedent, until the early twentieth century, dictated that a prime minister wait until actually defeated on their legislative programme in a vote on the Speech from the Throne before resigning.

 Order of Precedence in England and Wales
Precedence existed in pre-Conquest times: an Anglo-Saxon document states that "in the laws of the English, people and law went by ranks." The Conquest presumably resulted in the introduction of precedence as it was practiced at the court of Normandy, just as titles and offices were imported by the victors.
For instance, the duke of Edinburgh was always ranked as a duke of the United Kingdom created in 1948, and thus ranked 32 on the roll of 1998, while in the general order of precedence he immediately follows the Queen and precedes his son.

 THE ORDER OF MALTA, SOVEREIGNTY, AND INTERNATIONAL LAW
By the end of the century the Order exchanged Ambassadors or Ministers with the Holy Roman Emperor, the Kings of France, Spain, Portugal, Prussia, and Sardinia, and the Emperor of Russia, the Republic of Venice, the United Provinces of the Netherlands, and the Elector of Bavaria.
The Order also sent a delegation to the Congress of Vienna in 1814, and on 1 August 1815 Commander Miarai was appointed Minister Plenipotentiary to the European sovereigns participating, and was himself included in the preliminary conference.
The Statutes of the Order are the modern equivalent of the ancient Rule confirmed by Pope Paschal II in 1113, but the authority of the Holy See did not affect or impinge upon the validity of the Order’s rule of either Rhodes (from 1310 to 1523) or Malta (from 1530-1798).

 Women Knights
In Italy, the Order of the glorious Saint Mary, founded by Loderigo d'Andalo, a nobleman of Bologna in 1233, and approved by pope Alexander IV in 1261, was the first religious order of knighthood to grant the rank of militissa to women.
In the case of the Order of Saint-John (later Malta), they were soeurs hospitalières, and they were the counterparts of the frères prêtres or priest brothers, a quite distinct class from the knights.
The first European woman to have been granted an order of knighthood was Queen Mary, when she was made a Knight Grand Commander of the same order, by special statute, in celebration of the Delhi Durbar of 1911.

 SHAPE Information:
It’s hard to imagine that the order of the colourful national flags of NATO’s members moving harmoniously in the Belgian breeze could be the cause of lengthy, sometimes emotional debate.
In 1953, the SHAPE legal advisor observed “Grande Bretagne” was not the correct French expression for the United Kingdom.
Therefore he suggested the adoption of the order used by NATO Headquarters at the Palais de Chaillot in Paris, where the English names were used, the host nation was not granted a special position, and there was no system of rotation.

 4. Miva Script Operators
Miva Script operators have a built-in precedence that determines which operator gets interpreted first if there are two or more operators in an expression.
Note: A minus sign can precede a literal number to make it negative (for example, -3.14), but otherwise must be used strictly as a binary operator: {-x} evaluates to the literal string '-x'; to express the negative of a value, use {-1*x} or {0-x}.
Each operator is assigned a precedence, and if there is a choice of which operator to evaluate first, the operator with higher precedence is evaluated.

 JAG - The Peerage
The oldest and the most important is that for the order of men whose joint counsel the king valued and who were equal to the highest ranking feudal lords in the realm.
In contrast, new appointments to the Peerage of Ireland did not end similarly in 1801, when Ireland joined Great Britain in the United Kingdom and the Peerage of the United Kingdom was created, for it was agreed that the number of Irish peers could be maintained at 100 by new creations.
These, in order of precedence, are Dukes, Marquesses, Earls, Viscounts and Barons - but in Scotland the last rank is not Baron but Lord of Parliament (abbreviated to "Lord") because Baron in Scotland is still a feudal title, not a peerage title.
